Bulkypix has plenty of new games coming up, one of which being a casual title called Candymeleon. Players tilt to move a chameleon, and tap on the screen to launch its tongue upward in order to eat the candy above, but there’s certain candy that’s bad. Currency can be earned in-game to unlock powerups and new chameleons. Expect this in the next month or so.

For the impatient, Runaway: A Twist of Fate releases on Thursday. This is the first episode of an extended point-and-click adventure series, similar in controls to The Walking Dead, with more episodes arriving in the coming months.

DogBox Studio and Bulkypix’s upcoming third-person shooter, Project: Holy Shield has gotten a name upgrade. Now titled Journey To Hell, the game’s original tagline, it’s looking to be a pretty sweet game with plenty of gritty, comic-book style visuals and an original soundtrack. It’s due in November. The developers have also released a dev diary video onto YouTube, where you can see all the cool game creation going on. Check it out:

This November, discover Journey to Hell, a post-apocalyptic TPS with incredible 3D graphics and gripping content. Seven maps, each with their own special atmosphere, plus a unique “real-time render” sound engine developed by AudioGaming and a soundtrack composed especially for the game are only a few of Journey to Hell’s many cool features.

Playing as Gabriel and Rachel, two members of the secret organization Holy Shield, you’ll behead, dismember and disembowel daemons as varied as they are terrifying! When the carnage is over, they’ll surely beat a hasty return to the festering darkness from whence they came.

With plenty of clichés and elements of parody, Project: Holy Shield pays tribute to the genre of big guns, kick-ass heroes and bloodthirsty daemons.

Prior the game’s release in the App Store, DogBox has opened its studio doors via a behind-the-scenes “making of the game” video:

From the creators of Chicken Doom comes a Project: Holy Shield, an over-the-top metal-and-blessed-guns action shooter for iOS.

In a post-apocalyptic world, daemons of all kinds wander the Earth, hungry for man-flesh. Luckily the human race has some protection: Holy Shield, a secret organization that for thousands of years has fought against daemons in order to preserve the balance between good and evil.

But one day, while on a routine mission, two daemon hunters encounter the vilest daemon ever faced by Holy Shield. As a consequence, they are instructed to find the source of his Evil, and fight all of his slaves before tackling the daemon himself. Thus begins a violent, crazy journey of epic proportions!

Retro gaming and God complexes: two great tastes that taste great together. And in the case of 148Apps Editor’s Choice app The Sandbox, that’s exactly what gamers get. Now, though, the fun expands to the magical iPad screen (including full retina display support), providing a universal experience on either iOS device. Reviewer Rob Rich had this to say about the game: “Sometimes a game’s title just fits. It does a perfect job of getting the point across without bombarding the reader with unnecessary words…games like The Sandbox do titles right. It’s pretty much dead-on about what players can expect. Which is to say it’s a sandbox. A glorious, pixilated, element-manipulating sandbox.”

This latest update from developer Pixowl and Bulkypix does more than just make The Sandbox universal, it also adds 11 new tree species, 7 new backgrounds, 8 glowing gems and 30 missions to solve. That’s enough to keep any budding godling busy.

More additions are on the way, including new ways to bring lifeforms to your creation, so get in The Sandbox, start playing and ‘unleash the pixel artist dormant in you.

Hasta La Muerte Reborn on iOS

Mobile gamers already got a taste of BulkyPix and Pohlm Studio’s ghoulish survival game Hasta La Muerte when it arrived on Windows Phone 7 last year. With its recent release on the App Store though, that many more people can now give it a shot. We can’t stop death but what if we could command it?

In Hasta La Muerte players attempt to ferry groups of souls to their eternal resting places. However, the path is not an easy one. Throughout the 30 levels players will have to confront damned and inconsolable souls, an enigmatic scientist and his monstrous creations like the Meca-Angel, and various other hellish obstacles in this unique 2D world. Players aren’t powerless though. Using “Soulpets” they can gain new abilities, rack up points, and formulate new strategies in this “chase-and-be-chased” experience.

Looking out for the dead is a hard task but somebody’s got to do it. Hasta La Muerte is available now for $0.99 on the App Store.

Brainergy, a new puzzler from BulkyPix, takes a familiar style of game and gives it an environmentalist slant. Developed by Pohlm Studio, the goal is to convert elements into energy sources to clean up and power the world.

The graphics are minimalist and the basic gameplay is simple. Just position things like solar panels over sunshine to convert it to energy. You can harness rain, wind, and more in increasingly complex arrangements as you try to find the best possible solution. The game is set on Earth, and takes players on a journey to 13 cities to battle the greenhouse effect.

Brainergy has six types of energy and 14 converters to help players solve the 50 included puzzles. The game explains how the various conversion processes work and offers other tidbits on point in much the same way that Fruit Ninja teaches fruit facts. In other words the environmental education is not part of the gameplay, but rather offered after the round where you can choose to read it or not.

Still it’s interesting to see a major game publisher putting out a title that focuses on something of greater social and intellectual merit than how to best kill zombies or make matches of three. If you try Brainergy, we’d love to know what you think in the comments.
